Yes, it’s Hot! But, not too hot to knit in the air conditioning.
I finished one of my Sunshine Socks. I am using Sanguine Gryphon’s Bugga in Dragon Millipede with a size 1.5 needle. This is a CookieA pattern and I am loving it.
Day 5 of the 2011 Calendar Scarf is completed. I am using Madelintosh Merino Light in the Rainwater color with a size 2 needle. 19 more days to go.
I started another Basic sock pattern using Lollipop yarn in the Spring Fever color with a size 1 needle. Love the colors in the striping.
And yes, I did get yarn this week. I caught a Loopy Ewe update of Wollmeise DK. I have heard great reviews of this yarn, so I got 5 skeins in the Grunfink color. I hope to use it for a sweater.
I also got 3 skeins of Madelinetosh Pashmina in the Dr Zhivago’s Sky color. This is possibly for a sweater.
I also bought a skein of Plymouth De Aire in the color New England Nights (404) to make a quick very small shawl or you could call it a cowl.
The Loopy Ewe has a new system of earning rewards. In addition to earning dollar credits, you get a small gift in your order when you reach certain levels. I reached the Cotton Club level and got a measuring tape, Soak samples, bookmark pattern with enough yarn to make the bookmark. It’s really cute!
I also bought a Yarn Daisy. I saw this on the knitpicks web site. This helps you wind yarn into a ball. While I thought they would be smaller, I bought a set anyway. It comes in a package of 3. I got these at Hobby Lobby.
